battery question

picked up a 98 gsxr 750. did a motor swap the bike had a ytz14s battery in it. seems to hold a charge but i know it's NOT a recommended battery for this bike typical is es9bs.
What are the side effects for running this battery in the bike?

the reason I ask is that the tank was getting SUPER hot. I could only hold my hand on it for a few seconds. I changed the rectifier, wiring harness, stayed the same. then I changed out the battery and it went away.

any thoughts as to why this happened?
